This is the story of four writers, Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, Flannery O'Connor, and Walker Percy. These four American Catholics were called the School of the Holy Ghost. Paul Elie tells these four writers' story as a pilgrimage from the God-obsessed literary past to the chaos of post-war American life. And it is a story about the power of literature to change-and to save-our lives.
